The Division of Student Affairs supports the mission of the University and the Basilian Catholic tradition through programs, policies, and services that offer valuable learning experiences and promote development of the whole person. Student Affairs is comprised of the following offices: Campus Ministry, Career Services, Counseling and Disability Services, the Office of the Dean of Students, Health Promotion and Wellness, Intercollegiate Athletics, Residence Life (which includes Guinan and Young Halls), Recreational Sports (including the Jerabeck Activity and Athletic Center), Student Activities, the Office for Student Success, and the University Police Department.
The Mendenhall Achievement Center, located on the second floor of Crooker Center, was established at the University of St. Thomas in 2008 as the result of a gift to the University from Trini Mendenhall, the former owner of Fiesta Mart, Inc., and a former board member of the University of St. Thomas. The Center is comprised of a professional support team that works collaboratively to provide a comprehensive approach designed to assist students with achieving their goals.
Services within the Mendenhall Achievement Center include Academic Advising, the Career Services and Testing Center, Counseling and Disability Services, Tutorial Services, and the Office for Student Success. In addition to its central location, students benefit by having these support services in one location.
The Office of Student Affairs, located on the second floor of the Crooker Center, also helps coordinate the Student Government Association, the Student Activities Board, the Council of Clubs, and management of the Crooker Center, and oversees the Code of Student Conduct. The Office of Student Affairs issues UST Identification Cards; schedules room reservations for the Old Bookstore in Crooker Center, as well as the Crooker Center corridor spaces; and keeps students aware of campus events and activities through semi–weekly email announcements. Offices of the Vice President for Student Affairs, the Assistant Vice President of Campus Life, and the Dean of Students and Assistant Vice President for Student Success are located in the Office of Student Affairs.
